The record for this photo is completely blank.

However, I think we can safely assume the photo is of the Corning  Savings Bank!

When the photo was taken and where the Corning Savings Bank was located in Corning are a mystery! Although I’d venture a guess that the Corning Savings Bank was probably on Market Street…

If you know anything about the old Corning Savings Bank – let us hear from you!

And here’s your weekly reminder that at the library you can scan your photos and slides to create digital family albums and slideshows; and even use one of the Circut machines, and other Creation Station equipment, to help you create a special paper family history album.

Have a great weekend!

Local History Photo: Friday, January 20, 2017

Hi everyone, here is our Local History Photo of the week!

And this is another one of those interesting photos from our Local History Photo Archive, that features what appears to be a photo of a photo.

This photo is of Mr. H. Stasch but who or where the photo was taken remain a mystery.

I don’t know who Mr. H. Stasch was but I’m wondering if he wasn’t a teacher or principal or academic of some kind, as it looks like that might just be a portion of the Northside Blodgett school building behind him — the lower windows look similar…

Whoever he was, Mr. H. Stasch was certainly a dapper fellow!

And if you know who he was and/or recognize where this photo was taken let us hear from you!

Hi everyone, it is Friday so it is time for the Local History Photo of the Week!

And here it is!

The record for this photo doesn’t feature a date.

And the record only states the photo is of “State Street Viaduct.”

However, it certainly isn’t a new photo as there hasn’t been a State Street Viaduct in a number of years!

If you know anything about the old State Street Viaduct let us know!

The item record for this photo indicates that it is of the Riverside Builders Float that appeared in a Parade held in Corning, NY on July 4, 1929.

What a cool float!
